Take the same set of workers, swap out a bad boss for a better one, and productivity goes up about 10%, with no other intervention, according to a Harvard Business School study. So, how do you switch a boss from "bad" to "better"? We have a few ideas that may help.
Leaders are motivators. They derive their authority through successfully delivering on their implied promise to make life better for those that follow them. The key to this lies in employee engagement: Well motivated people self-motivate. They initiate action that moves the team towards their mutually agreed-on goals. We explore a Harvard Business School webinar invitation that strikes that same theme.
